Beet - Bull's Blood - Beta vulgaris (Crassa group)

Biennial Heirloom. Maturity to beet root in 55-60 and to baby leaf tops in 35 days. Exceptionally beautiful dark red-purple tops with sweeter flavor and heat resistance. This variety was selected for the darkest colored leaves from the French variety Crapaudine.

Soil & Water: Beets are easily grown, though they prefer deep, loose soil and even, moderate water. Mulch once established to protect the roots from heat.

Planting & Growing: Soak seeds for at least 12 hours before planting to promote germination. Space 2" for greens, 3" for summer harvest beets, and 4" for storage growing beets. Tolerates light shade.

Harvesting & Storage: For best flavor, harvest roots while they are 1"-3". To minimize moisture loss in the roots, twist off the greens. Roots store well in humid, cool conditions. Greens should be eaten within 1 or 2 days of picking.

Did You Know? One beet has only 35 calories and is high in folic acid (especially important for pregnant women).
